My Computer tab 2

In Zoolz Business, selecting the same data from both My Computer and Cold Storage tabs, will make your data uploaded to the Instant Storage not to the Cold Storage.

Your plan should contains Instant Storage if you wish to use the My Computer tab to select the data to be backed up. Otherwise, you’ll need to select the data from the Cold Storage tab.

If you want to use this way to backup a network location, you’ll need to map that network location and let it save its credentials. Need help on how to map a network location? Click here.*

If you can’t see the context (right click) menu options, please click here.

The Instant storage option will appear only for the Zoolz Business users who purchased instant storage.
